I scandal you may wonder how tight the government really is -- big tech companies like FaceBook for example.
-- shocking new report revealed that Facebook's former security chief Max Kelly.
Actually left to go work for the NSA back in 2010 and evidently he's not the only big -- exact.
That's -- move from Silicon Valley to government spy agency.
This brings a lot of questions and concerns namely look import these acts tech employees.
Bringing to their new jobs.
With me down this frightening development is managing director of -- buffalo right Choi welcome back to the show right.
Thank you does.
-- -- -- -- And he is actually took that knowledge of the keys the kingdom.
And what to go work for an agency that has now spawned -- -- I think we have to assume that you know employees at tech companies like FaceBook Google.
Skype -- they are they have this information and they're going to go somewhere and and maybe -- NSA and feed that.
So you're -- claimed that they have we have to assume.
That everything we put aren't lying could eventually be handed over to people who were spying on us and you just have to be savvy guy that.
Yet they've got policies in place but when you turn into reality.
You're going to see that information isn't always where it's supposed to be they're gonna claim it's a 100% -- down.
But how many times have we -- leaks whether it's credit card information.
Or online information leaked either accidentally or -- hole in the security software or malicious hackers going in in in getting this information.
So I can't say that people are always going to be secure and you know I think people are under the assumption when I post something online it's going to be there for public consumption.
But you know it's beyond that it's the metadata it's the stuff that you don't necessarily see.
-- motivation from being a place like FaceBook you have to imagine.
Edit the -- he -- -- and is making a lot of money and -- a lot of stock and did really well why would you leave and go and work for the government.
Who knows maybe it's a greater challenge may be you know FaceBook has been.
A huge supporter of of -- being fight crime a couple years ago and I'm not saying.
This particular security official but the most recent security official actually implemented a program where.
They can actually searched through content so.
There was anything that say a sexual predator was out there and and putting in language that would be a little bit worrisome for law enforcement it would actually openly give that information out.
And you know they've they've actually stated their policy is if as long as they it -- a court order or -- subpoena.
They would -- that information freely in order to.
To protect users and and at that point they were under a lot of pressure yes you.
To help -- especially with a lot of sexual predators.
Lurking on FaceBook.
That's one big but you know what -- asked that question the past Packers and the like why would you go for the private sector where you were making a lot of money to go work for the NSA.
Or or any government agency for a lot less they say that they are allowed to do things.
When you're working for the NSA that you are not allowed to do in regular life in your lack despite away.
That you can't deal for private companies see you combine sort of that ability inhibition.
With someone who knows the intimate ins and outs of the FaceBook or a -- ball.
And you get a very powerful government who could spy on us even more than we ever imagined.
Your thoughts on that.
Ahead definitely and I think when we looked at in terms of national security in terms of our own security.
-- private privately.
You're going to see the Internet as like the next four.
Whether that's in a very proactive manner order reactive manner.
And so for someone to leave from Silicon Valley.
And and whatever else.
You know maybe you do go to the NFC maybe you go to another government agency.
But you do get that level of freedom to go out and and and use your talents down to make your mark and write -- so much for coming on the show appreciate your time.
Thank you appreciate it up next.
